Social Distancing Games For Kids | Outdoor Garden Parties 2020

There are tons of traditional games out there that you can easily play while following Government guidelines. Even better you make it more fun and add little twists onto each game.


Charades is a great game to play for kids of all ages. The children take turns to act out a film or TV show character, scenes from something they love to watch or specific words for their friends to guess. It's a great game that has countless opportunities and hours of fun at end. No one has to stand near each other and you don't even need any equipment to play!

Scavenger Hunt!

If you kept up to date with our previous blogs we've spoken about scavenger hunts in the past. You might be wondering how it can work with social distancing? Scavenger hunts usually require planting items and then letting the kids finding & bring them back to base. Take it one step further and make it into a nature scavenger hunt! You make a checklist that has pictures of something you would usually find outdoors, like bugs, flowers and rocks. Or you can take it even further and take actual photos of the items you want the kids to find and have them printed off. Either way the kids then have to hunt for the items and cross out each one along the way. It's a great game that requires patience and adventure while making sure no one has to cross paths.

Hide & Seek!

Another great game is hide & seek! Now, if you are having an outdoor garden party then the kids might not exactly have many places to hide. But thanks to the wonders of modern technology you can take it one step further and add that sense of creativity. The game is simple: the kids take turns hiding in different places and only showing a small part of their body such as a hand or foot. Parents take a photo and then the kids have a competition to see who can spot the person hiding in the photograph.

Get Crafty!

It's no secret that kid's creativity is far better than an adults. So, why not use the opportunity to create some arts & crafts? All the kids can bring their own flower pots, for example. Everyone decorates each of their pots and then everyone can share their creative ideas between each other. It's a nice way to develop your children's creativity while ensuring they have at the same time!

Design A Game!

Children will love designing their own games to play as well. What better way to play games than to partake in one you have created specifically for your garden? Give clear instructions about social distancing and encourage children to be creative. It will be good fun playing the games too.
